Are you experiencing brain fog?

By Monica van de Weerd
Brain fog can also be called "mental fatigue" and can result in:
-Memory problems;
-Lack of mental clarity;
-Poor concentration;
-Inability to focus.
The main causes of brain fog are:
1. Stress - chronic stress can increase blood pressure, weaken the immune system and affect our mood - when you are stressed, it becomes harder to think clearly, reason and focus.
2. Lack of sleep. Poor quality, or not enough sleep (adults need 7-9 hours sleep a night) can interfere with brain function (and is also linked with stress).
3. Hormonal changes. This especially impacts females, levels and ratios of the hormones, progesterone and estrogen, alter during menstruation cycles, pregnancy and menopause which can affect memory and cause short-term cognitive impairment.
4. Diet. A diet with too many calories and the wrong type of calories eg highly processed foods high in salts and sugars, can affect our gut and brain health.
5. Medications. Brain fog can be a side-effect of some drugs - speak with your medical practitioner if you have concerns about this. Brain fog is common for people going through chemotherapy and is sometimes referred to as "chemo-brain."
6. Medical conditions. There are many medical conditions that affect brain function, especially those associated with inflammation, fatigue and changes in glucose levels. Again, please see your medical practitioner if you have any concerns whatsoever - and if you find you are not listened to - find another practitioner!
